On behalf of the CIPMM Virtual Summit Co-Chairs Carolyn Montague and Eve Corbin and Organizing Committee, we are very excited to invite you to Join us for the CIPMM Virtual Summit that will take place on December 1-2, 2020. The Preliminary Agenda is available on the website and Registration is now open! We are offering a special rate of $275 for two full days of learning and networking – start your approvals today and register!
We are thrilled by the rich and diverse content that will be offered at this Summit and the best part is that you will have a unique opportunity to attend every single session of this event! That’s right! We will be recording all the sessions and you will have an access to absolutely everything not only during the event but also after the event! Just imagine! You won’t miss anything! You can also repeat your favourite sessions and experience again and again your favourite moments of this event. Have we mentioned an outstanding line up of sessions, panels and speakers, covering the topics of the procurement and materiel management, fleet management, mental health, well being and leadership? But wait! There will be also fun activities and social events that you won’t want to miss! Yoga and meditation classes, photo booth, cooking with a chef, stand-up comedy, happy hour with a mixologist, campfire with haunted walks, and so much more! 

All we can say, you won’t be disappointed – you will learn a lot, you will network and you will have a bit of fun! 
ATTENTION! Register by November 1st and have a chance to be selected to participate in the Case Study Session (limited to 25 participants) “ Learn, Engage, and Explore. How to improve my business acumen skills in one learning session” with Al Garlinski. 
The Government of Canada Procurement Competency Profiles have been updated to include 5 new technical competencies: Business Acumen; Data Analytics; Negotiations; Project Management and Risk Management. Take charge of your procurement career by attending this learning session. You will be connecting and exchanging ideas with colleagues, by working virtually through a simulation case study that specifically addresses the value of applying good business acumen knowledge. Business Acumen applies understanding of how industry and the Government of Canada work to achieve goals and objectives. It also includes risk management principles that are applied to all stages of the procurement process, where we assess and control threats that affect the results. The result is making evidence-based decisions when assuming, avoiding, transferring, mitigating sharing and compensating elements of risk. Benefits for government buyers:

·  Having a clear understanding and knowledge of the new technical competencies.
·  Being able to understand how you can develop the competencies to your skill sets.
·  Being able to apply specifically business acumen best practices to procurement

Note: This session will be limited to 25 participants. Registered participants must be committed to meeting twice before the workshop and complete some assignment homework. The session will be open to all delegates to participate as observers if not selected as of of the 25 participants.

Would you like to meet our Virtual Summit Committee Team as they share with you what new skills they learned during COVID-19? We hope you will have as much fun watching it, as we did putting it together!
